, and will be replaced by al jazeera america. in our time here in "the war room" we have focused on important political stories from our march goes on series, to controlling the playing of gun violence in this country and the immigration reform debate that continues to rage on. joining me now inside "the war room" are two of my current colleagues and friends, john fugelsang, the host of "viewpoint, who has the second best hair on this network, and my very close friend, "the young turks" studio in los angeles cenk uygur. thank you both for joining us in "the war room" one last time. >> thank you, michael. >> thank you. >> michael: john, i'm sgoorth with you what do you think the impact that current tv has had on the progressive discussion if any at all? >> well, that's a good question. i have to say it was positive, if not necessarily profound. while this whole experience has proven that liberals are very good at capitalism, i'm very happy for mr. gore, i don't think network had the chance to make the proper impact it could have had had it had proper promotions behind it. i think if we would have had a
that the election for that senate seat is going to be held in october? on a wednesday. here in america, we generally hold big statewide, big federal elections on tuesdays in november. wednesday in october? and, in fact, new jersey already has a previously scheduled big statewide election on a tuesday this november. a big normal election on a big normal election day. tuesday in november. but the u.s. senate seat election between cory booker and the former mayor is going to be held on a different day, less than three weeks before the normal election day on a wednesday. why? because on that tuesday in november, real election day, new jersey governors chris christie, is on the ballot. he's running for re-election as new jersey governor, and as he is making the state of new jersey spend an extra $12 million to hold a whole separate election for this senate seat, less than three weeks before there's going to be an election anyway. amazing. presumably he is going this because he does not want to be on the same ballot with a democrat as popular as cory booker. there is basically no one in politics who think
these petitions. what you get is women actively participating in politics to change america for the better. the other great women's movement is the temperance movement. they are active in movements to prevent prostitution. these are things that are close to what would be considered domesticity for women, but is outside the house. it is in the public space. someone like sarah polk, with the exception of temperance, would have been appalled at what these women were asking for. eventually, by 1848, someone in and a few men, such as frederick douglass, are asking for the right to vote for women. that is a long time in coming. it is beginning at this time. >> headers on the phone from jackson,, mississippi. what is your question? >> i would like to know who ran against james k. polk when he was running for president and did sarah polk play the part? >> polk runs against henry clay from kentucky. clay had run twice again before this. he thinks it is his turn. he expects it will be a cake walk, because nobody has heard of jim spoke. he makes a number of mistakes during the campaign, and in the en
, there is one category where the u.s. has clearly led, foreclosure rates. only in america, can you find a government that subsidizes housing more so that we the people can get less. not have to look overseas to see a well functioning housing market. without government-sponsored enterprises. we don't have to look any further than our own jumbo market that has successfully operated without them. the housing bust, the jumbo market was 20% of our total housing market. there was capital, liquidity, competition, eight 30-year fixed mortgage choice and innovation all right here in america. all of that was delivered for from 7-20 basis points what the gse's offered. modest amount to avoid taxpayer bailouts, government control and economic catastrophe. i think it is important that whatever modest interest rate benefit the gse's delivered to , to some extent, it was clearly offset by the inflation of housing principles for the very same home buyers. in other words, it is not self- evident that the homebuyer was any better off. at, to some extent, it was clearly the end of the day,t argument i hav
, saying there is nothing there. don't worry about this, this ought to deeply concern anyone in america who's concerned about an open and free democracy. when we start talking about the irs being used to target the political opponents of any president, republican or democrat, if this can happen under a democratic president to his political opponents in the republican party and the conservative movement it could just as easily happen with a republican president against democrat or liberal groups. this is fundamentally dangerous to our society. >> i think you just made my case for why i think there should be a special prosecutor. we've gone just about as far as we can, with a congressional hearing, there's enough there to be curious, a congressional hearing at most what they do, they send letters back and forth, like some little cat and mouse game asking for documents. they have subpoena power, they don't exercise it. if it went to a special prosecutor, a special prosecutor would issue subpoenas and get to the bottom of this. this is very troubling and the best way is to lift it from the sphe
